Horse Shoe Park Bench

On display at the Woodford County Fair before going to state
This horse shoe park bench was the 2007 Illinois State Fair winner in Arts/Metals. It is made of 140 authentic worn horseshoes welded together. I got the idea from another bench that I saw at an auction earlier that year. I changed the design from the bench at the auction and made it more durable and comfortable to sit on.
It took approximately 8 hours to lay it all out and weld it together and spray paint it black.
